a sense of mandela and what the environment was like. >> that was very important to the film makers to drop the audience right in amongst it and the actors amongst it. make sure we go into and had them in. and they made that. it was apartheid that effected people of south africa. so we needed them to be -- this is not a green screen movie. this is where an audience is going to be dropped into an immersive world that's real. >> another thing that struck me as real, idris, you actually went and spent the night in robben island where he was held for some of 27 years. you tried to stay in the actual cell but were denied. but you stayed in a cell that was set up exactly like the cell he stayed on for 18, 19 years. >> i needed some perspective, some context. i needed to understand. i haven't been to jail, and i know that if your freedom is taken away from you, that's something you and i can only imagine. but mandela had it for 19 years. here i was about to play his life, i needed to have some context and perspective. robben island is haunted. it's haunted. it's a place full of spirits of

feel like i'm doing my part to help out the environment. >>> welcome back. for one final week the house and senate in the house at the same time. that means there are four days to finish a budget deal that is more of a whimper than bang. they are closing in on a deal that doesn't address entitlement, fix the sequester, doesn't do much of anything else. lets just call it a temporary se cease-fire joining me chris cillizza, mark halperin, senior analyst msnbc,time editorial columnist ruth marcus. thanks to all. chris cillizza, what do we expect out of the ryan budget deal. >> chris van hollen of maryland, a very senior member in the house in terms of these budget deals gave it a 50/50 chance of happening. my guess is we'll get something, andrea. you hit on what's important here. this is not a grand bargain, not a medium-sized bargain, this is a bargain probably the best -- if we do get a deal, the best we could say for it. it would replace some pieces of the sequestration, we believe. not all but some, and it would keep the government up and running beyond the january deadline. i guess at

you can change the environment for maybe how people are going to act come january. do i think it's sad that this is where we are? a little bit. but, you know, i'm a democrat. which means i was born an optimist. i believe all things are possible. so i'll take these first few steps as opposed to making grand, ideological statements that are big symbols and do nothing to really help us move forward. >> one question follow-up to you, kiki on that, immigration reformers, they've been depending on a budget deal. i think they assume let's get that done, then we can get immigration overhamm eoverhaule. i think most of us feel that is pretty much unfortunately dead in the water. it should have been something, at least the dreamer portion, should have been something that could have gotten done a long time ago. >> well, it may have been able to have gotten done a long time ago. that's a disappointment. i'm not ready to give up on that. maybe not the whole shebang. but the dreamer portion. if we can get the budget moving forward that lets a litling bit of oxygen back in the room, right? i would su

stories is a view into how you can succeed in all kinds of different environments. it's important to note that they are different and have different styles. they share a lot of common qualities. they are all responding to their environment. i think that's the key thing i took away. there is no single answer to how to fix our system. we really need to find a solution that allows creativity and allows both individual teachers and administrations and districts to find their own solutions. >> to do what they do best and deal with what they have. >> it's different in inner cities than in rural communities and for different age groups. >> did you get any push back when you wanted to develop this? >> the school administration was supportive and i ran this as a pilot program with the intention of opening my own school and the administration approached me and said would you consider opening up here? there was an idea of existing within the confines and there was something exciting about that model. i am working on a teaching institute that would be built around the same curriculum for students bet

a professional or working environment. if a woman thinks she's going to change a man in a relationship, not so much. your article says mail ceos pay their employees less and themselves more after having sons but when they have daughters they pay more giving female employees the biggest raises. what do you think it is about having a daughter that triggers generosity? >> researchers think it might have something it do with women being more other regarding than men. this is a finding that's debated in academic research. but -- >> okay. >> what's interesting here is daughters this works for, but not with sisters. right? i mean it's the opposite. if a man has a sister, that's not going to help. here's the quote. having a sister has the opposite effect, making men more supportive of traditional gender roles, more conservative politically and less likely to perform housework. so you'd think that a man growing up with sisters it would make the man a bit more empathetic towards women. where's the disconnect here? >> right. so researchers who did this study think that it might have something to do with

environment we're in, they're always hiring. they always have issues. so the last thing you want to do is put your search on hold. the very fact that a lot of people are doing that, a lot of your competitors who want those jobs that you do are taking some time off, gives you a real edge. >> zach, 203,000 jobs, what kinds of jobs are we talking about here? >> what we're talking about for the holidays, a lot of these are retail jobs and there will be more hiring ahead of that, as far as people are still going into malls and brick and mortar stores and not doing e-commerce. but a lot of those jobs they may get now they may find they're not going to have in february. people hire ahead of the heavy-duty christmas shopping season. a lot of these are definitely not what you would call great high-paying jobs, maybe entry level jobs. one of the reasons we paid so much attention this week to the minimum wage debate, mcdonald's and walmart, they may be good if you're 19 years old and trying to get a good into the labor market. but they're not necessarily careers. >> we continue to talk oftentimes ad nau

to be a challenge to get anything through the house in this environment. they've been difficult to get through. i think it's important we recognize that working families should have a decent wage and raising the minimum wage is something that should be a prerequisi prerequisite. we should get that done. that shouldn't even be controversial. it helps our whole economy grow. we certainly want people who work to be able to afford their family budget. so i would hope this would be noncontroversial. n we've done it in the past. i hope we do it again. >> in fact, you've been quite vociferous about it. in your home stand of maryland, two county there is have raised their minimum wages to $11.50 an hour. we've seen this in other local governments across the country. do you think it's the only way this initiative is going to succeed, keep it local, give up on congress, and the federal increase? >> every time we've increased the minimum wage, it's helped our economy. every time. we've heard predictions it would cost jobs. it increases jobs. it increases livability, the standard of living for americans. so
